Well, here's the deal. The GLAAD thing will go away; while I doubt it will pass from conversation TOTALLY for a long time, the raging debate (to say nothing about the moronic "Those homo GLAAD fucks don't know shit, and they should leave Kevin alone. It's so fucking gay to say he's a homophobe!" posts) that's been going on will undoubtedly fade quite a bit after J&SBSB is released. Once that happens, the people who've been driven off by this crap may (and hopefully, will) choose to return. You're right, they are indeed some of our best and brightest, which is exactly WHY they've been driven off. Leaving a few of us to hold down the fort against the massed forces of mediocraty - thanks, guys! Just kidding. Well, sort of. They said what they had to say, in some cases over and over again, and it was like bashing their heads against a brick wall. That's gotta be frustrating as all hell. Fortunately, I don't think anyone's totally in the right, so I'm just trying to preach seeing the movie and enjoying it before any issues get in the way. And unlike some people who feel they have to address every moronic post personally, I CAN ignore the particularly stupid ones. Well, except for the Half Baked guy, because for some reason he drives me out of my fucking mind.
Anyway, I dearly hope that this will all pass away into the anals... er, sorry... annals of VA history, and we'll get our buddies back. It ain't the same without them.
